Sonia Almeida: The Event We Call Seeing

Paulina Perlwitz reviews the recent exhibition Sonia Almeida: The Event We Call Seeing at Simone Subal Gallery, New York.

Perlwitz writes: "Almeida is playing with the way we take in visual information currently, and I might go so far as to say as she’s poking fun of the fact that contemporary viewers are generally over-stimulated, and that we can only truly grasp so much information at once… Threaded through the show is a questioning of the screen as an idea; flowing, gestural forms duck in and out of painterly washes of transparent color. Walking through the show, one gets the feeling of being a key player in a game of hide and go seek with form itself. That which is seen becomes equally important as what is unseen. Hot colors excite the senses on a visceral level, which is then followed by an unexpected cooling off of sense as we try to mentally comprehend what we are seeing, as we attempt to fit it into our narrow capacity of understanding."
